Pay raise at Regional District

  • Apr. 23, 2008 4:00 p.m.

Electoral area directors on the regional district board will collect an extra $1,500 a year, after the pay raise was approved at a meeting Friday night in Queen Charlotte (April 18). Four out of the 10 directors on the board are affected by the decision: Area A director Des Nobels, Area C director Karl Bergman, Area D director Ian Hetman and Area E director Travis Glasman. Chair Barry Pages said the raise reflects the fact that these directors have an additional workload attending committee meetings. As well, these directors do not collect remuneration from municipalities like the other directors do. Municipal directors now receive $7,878 annually and area directors $9,378. Directors also recieve $150 per board meeting attended. The chair receives an extra $5,890 and the vice-chair receives an extra $1,560. The regional district also pays for health insurance for any directors who want it.See also editorial, this website and in the Observer.
